Soldier Proof Rf Cable Solutions

The MegaPhase Warrior Cable's® internally armored GrooveTube® technology is designed specifically for the Warfighter on the ground. Field proven, with over 150,000 Warrior Cables fielded, the Warrior Cable provides dependable, consistent performance - every time without fail.

The critical systems our soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines use to jam radio-controlled improvised explosive devices (IEDs) rely on the MegaPhase Warrior Cable. These cables are used in tens of thousands of jamming systems fielded on every vehicle in the US Military including MRAP, M-ATV, Stryker, Paladin, HWMMV and others. The group of systems are known as CREW - counter radio-controlled electronic warfare - and are used to prevent detonation of roadside bombs, the most deadly and dangerous threat to our troops.

The MegaPhase Warrior Cable's superior features include:

• 100 dB Shielding Effectiveness avoids conflict with adjacent signals

• High Power Handling

• Stability Under Flexure and Vibration

In addition to MegaPhase's battle-tested RF coax cables, MegaPhase has developed a line of rugged, GrooveTube® super flexible test cables and quick-mate connectors and adapters to meet critical battle-field demands. The SiteLine™ Rugged Armored cables and network analyzer cables also provide reliable and accurate performance under the most rugged field conditions.

British Royal Marine Commandos take part in Operation Sond Chara, the clearance of Nad-e Ali District of Helmand province in southern Afghanistan by the Afghan National Security Force and troops deployed with the International Security Assistance Force 42 Commando. The operation's goal was to bring stabilzation to the district and to increase security to Lashkar Gah and set safe conditions for voter registration later in the year. Asymmetrical, irregular warfare has taught some hard lessons to the United States and its coalition partners in Iraq and Afghanistan.

with car bombs and suicide vests. In Iraq and Afghanistan, the United States and dozens of coalition partners have learned hard lessons in how to fight such a ground war - and developed new weapons, C4ISR systems, and tactics in the process.

While the potential for a major new state-on-state conflict remains, most militaries around the globe are investing in the types of armored vehicles, artillery, and other systems that can be applied to both a conventional fight as well as insurgencies and terrorist attacks.

In a March interview with Defence IQ, Peter S. Sapaty, director of Distributed Simulation at the Ukrainian National Academy of Sciences, summed up the predicament facing armies all over the planet.

"It is no secret that the world's mightiest armies are often powerless against terrorism, insurgency, or sea piracy, which are all using extremely flexible tactics and adaptable system organizations. It is becoming evident that classical military doctrines should be adapted, if not radically changed, to withstand these asymmetric situations and threats," he said.

"First, any centralized resources - such as concentration of troops, ammunition, or communication facilities - should be avoided as much as possible. Second, existing interoperability and common awareness principles should be re-examined and reassessed, as they are potentially insecure and counterproductive in certain situations. Third, changeable subordination and adaptable command and control should be incorporated, as runtime derivatives from interactive mission scenarios should survive by any means."

Accomplishing that will require technologies capable of integrating human and technical resources scattered throughout the battlespace - and beyond - creating global situational awareness, he added. They also should be capable of self-recovery from indiscriminate damage. And the tactical communications element must grow beyond centralized or interoperable capability to an ability to handle all requirements, from global to local, and support any level of communications foss or operation at any moment, seamlessly. £

Extending that technology development trend to a point perhaps ^ closer to reality than might be realized, could mean ultimately replac- = ing the human warfighter. f

"The formalization of mission scenarios will allow us to make a u gradual transition to robotized up to fully robotic armies, under the H same unified, organizational principles, where tactical communica- e tions will be taking place between manned and unmanned com- J ponents, also entirely within intelligent robotic swarms," Sapaty „i concluded. "These communications will have much more formal, »
